TVA Gatineau-Ottawa (CHOT-DT) announced today that channel 40 is out of service, and a new transmitter for channel 32 will be activated on Saturday, August 8.
(en français)

TVA notes that the channel 40 transmitter was damaged by the storm. Technicians tried to restore it, but could not.

While the outage is unfortunate, here's hoping that the new transmitter for 32 (packed next to active channels 33 to 35, albeit 34 is weak) will improve reception in Gatineau and Ottawa. La télé francophone, c'est important!

As for other channels:
  • CHCH-DT: For me, only the Ontario daily meetings (Ford and friends in full screen) and sometimes CHCH News are useful, as Wheel and Jeopardy! moved to Yes TV. Hopefully CHCH adds an EPG.
  • CJOH-DT: Yay, UHF 16! Keeping 13.1 as PSIP makes sense. EPG is recently off, hopefully not for long.
  • CHRO-DT: Hopefully goes smoothly, just not convinced PSIP 43.1 is needed. Also, hopefully EPG returns.

EPG is showing up now for CHRO 43-1 and CJOH 13-1.
